Lower back and H,ip surgeries

I strained my lower back at work and was treated with two sets of steroid treatments to no avail. The surgeon then carried out two separate laminectomies (L4 and S1, I do not have L5)neither helped. I then had a hip replacement which also did not help but I now have one leg longer than the other by 3/4". They were measured pre-op and were of equal length acknowledged by the surgeon! I still have the original pain radiating down the left leg and the source appears to be in the left buttock. I now walk with a pronounced limp am in constant pain and cannot participate in most normal activities. What should I do next?
